That angel and demon sitting on your shoulders aren’t metaphors for your innermost desires: They’re Aziraphale and Crowley, and they’re there to let you know that Good Omens is coming back for a third and final season.
Prime Video announced the renewal on Thursday, adding that Season 3 “will bring to life a serendipitous conversation from almost 35 years ago, between Neil Gaiman and the late Sir Terry Pratchett, where they mapped out ‘what happens next’ to the wonderful characters in the world of their internationally best-selling novel.”

Around that time, Tennant told TVLine that the major moment at the end of the episode — as well as Aziraphale’s learning that he’ll be deeply involved in the second coming of Christ — “doesn’t finish the story.” Sheen added: “It’s the start of another story.”
